I think we are talking about two different things. I own two VT60 plasmas and I am well aware they have image retention (especially when I first turn them on) but I was referring to the EF9500 and I haven't seen a single person complain that image retention was a problem. I know the review posted in the OLED sub made a comment about it but when I followed up in the EF9500 thread the only things people are complaining about are a yellowish spot on the screen and vignetting.

This is what I'm referring to. It's the second or third point in this article.

Yes that's more if you leave something static on but sadly some games have static images like Destiny.

I was looking at this tv but I'm not sure what I think of LED. Some of the LED's I've watched have the jerky movement I really notice on high speed action in movies.

I recall one person stating he had persistent IR on his LG OLED. Can't recall his name but he was banned a while back. With that said, my ZT suffers from IR more than any Panasonic plasma TV I've owned. I currently own 4 plus had another one we gave to my mother-in-law. All have had had temporary IR. But my ZT borders on burn in. Very persistent IR. But only see it with a solid color screen. Not a deal breaker.

Yeah, I definitely get worried playing PS4 games with my son that the HUD displays are going to burn-in but the few times I had image retention I was able to get rid of it with the screen wipe utility.

Best way of describing it is black "sparkles" of pixels appear briefly when you go from an all black screen to a light colored image.

So black screen, switch to say predominantly white image, black colored pixels briefly sparkle in image as pixels transition.

I use a blank input then switch to a light colored image to see it.
Hi Jay AVF,

I was wondering if you ever got to the bottom of what was causing your pixel misfires?
I appear to have the same issue on my VT65 when the panel luminance is set to MID.
Any help you can give would be appreciated.

Pet peeve, that's not "LED" it's an LCD with LED edge lighting, other than OLED there are no "LED televisions" and they have the same flaws as any other LCD unit to most extents and fast movement can be one of those flaws.

ok, I'm done

Funny because the LED tv at my office here at work 100% said LED on the box when the brought it in and it has horrific jerkiness when watching sports, fast commercials for action movies etc.

It's a Sharp Aquo's something or other.

Maybe I'm wrong but it said nothing about LCD on the box.

LED TVs are LCD with LED backlight no matter what is written on the box, and no matter what brand it is.

I've found a display model 60VT60 for a pretty good price. I has 5000hrs on it according to the salesman. He has said there is no image retention or burn in but I have to take that with a grain of salt. For what it's worth, the guy seemed genuine but I can't really go to the store to check it out because it is about 500km away. Should I consider purchasing it? I currently have a 50UT50 and am happy with it but the shadow detail could be better. Will the VT60 help in that regard? Thanks!

I have both and the VT is much better then the UT50. Be careful of the IR though, the VT is more susceptible to it.

If i buy a 60vt60 store demo that has worked for around 5000 hours in "torch mode", would it be more sensitive to IR/burn since it did not have a proper "break in"? The TV is in perfect condition, no scratches, and was used in a "specialized electronic" (not sure it's the proper term, they only sell video/audio equipment). It as no burn/retention at the moment.

Am i taking a big risk if i buy it? It comes with a 2 years extended guarantee (3 total) that covers up to dead pixels.

I have the choice between this or a new F8500 but the Samsung is more expensive and i prefer the image of the Panasonic. I always set up my display to low brightness because my eyes cant stand when it's to bright. For that reason i prefer regular lamp LCD to DEL lit.

Keep in mind that there are no replacement panel available any longer for the VT60. If it were me I would consider the F8500 new which though it is brighter can be adjusted or calibrated to improve the picture. JT

When i read the official thread for the 8500 parts also seems to be rare/gone, no? I will try to watch them side by side before I decide, keeping in mind a lot of people suggest to go for the Samsung

But what about IR on the demo Panny, would it be worst ?

I got my 60vt60 demo at bestbuy for $800. When i checked for IR/BI tv got some. But eventually it was gone now. wipe out by using the screen wipe. and now its already pro calibrated and im loving what i am seeing now what the set can produce. Its worth it.

My VT had a great picture, but would temporarily retain static images. These images would go away over time, but they were very easy to see. Then the panel went bad.

I found a couple of service manuals for some VT60 variants, but they don't have a 3-blink code. Other numbers of blinks are covered.

If you look at blink codes for earlier models, a count of 3 seems to be associated with the 3.3V A board voltage supplied by the P board. It might be a power supply issue. Better to check with someone who really knows, though.

Yikes... What's going on here... Are these panels starting to die already?? How long have you had them and if you remember, how many hours on them.... Hope mine lasts longer than 3 years!

I've got a VT with just over 1,000 hours on it. I play Destiny fairly regularly (maybe 2-3 times a week, for 2 hours at a time) with other content in between, and I have the dreaded HUD image retention in the bottom-left corner of the screen. It doesn't appear to have gone pink yet, so I wonder if there's still hope for me?

I'm considering calling my extended warranty to see what the replacement options would be (Vizio M70-C3, perhaps?). I know I'd be taking a hit on picture quality, but if retention is as big a problem as it seems with some content... not sure I can deal with that.

I feel like I've read everything online about what the "best" way is to get rid of IR (using the screen wipe, playing colored snow on a loop, playing b&w snow on a loop, keeping it on for 1,000 straight hours, etc...). So many methods are claiming to be the best... IS THERE an actual sure-fire way to get rid of this IR?

I've only had one serious IR issue on my set (was the wife!) and I made her buy the Disney WOW disc with the pixel flipper. I used this over a few days and it went away completely.

Has anyone been able to get VT60 Panasonic remote control to be able to control a raspberry pi using HDMI CEC? For some reason I cannot control it even with the Viera link turned on and I have tried two different HDMI cables and neither worked. I also tried hooking the raspberry pi to a Panasonic ST30 TV also and the same issue. I can though hook it up to my Samsung 46B8500 and everything works like it should so the cables and raspberry pi are all in working order. I was just curious if something is wrong with my TV's or I don't have something setup correctly. Thank you.

I was just curious if something is wrong with my TV's or I don't have something setup correctly. Thank you.
I have CEC working via the HDMI from a VT60 back to a Denon AVR, so it does work. There's only one port that supports CEC (and ARC for that matter). I believe it's HDMI2 on the VT60? Check the manual, to be sure. I also recall having to jump through hoops in two different places to get it enabled properly. But I was working on both CEC and ARC. Also, I'm using CEC to send IR volume up/down commands, detected by the TV's IR sensor, to the Denon X3000 AVR. I have my Tivo remote configured to send Panasonic IR signals. I've used the Panasonic remote that came with the TV and that also works; it's IR volume up/down are likewise sent through via CEC.

I no longer bother with ARC, as the built-in Netflix app was about the only reason I bothered, and recent updates for that on Tivo have eliminated that need. That is, it's easier to use Netflix from the Tivo and it's remote rather than using the VT60's app and remote. Personal preference, I suppose.

If you have something else that can accept CEC give that a try (like a receiver). It could be something regarding the VT60 speaking back to whatever driver you've got on the Pi. What's your setup on the Pi?

I used the HDMI cable that came with my Nvidia Shield TV after two different HDMI cables didn't work and it magically started working, so I guess not all HDMI cables are made equally (which I am sure Monster loves hearing that regarding HDMI cables) . I ordered a better HDMI cable from monoprice so hopefully that works.

I realize that this is the VT thread but I loss my ZT60 late July due to a panel/board failure and have since moved on but it still hurts!
